Completed Channels Connect Oregon Project to Willamette River

The Alder Creek Project, approved by the Portland Harbor Natural Resource Trustee Council in May 2014, is the first habitat restoration project to be implemented specifically to benefit fish and wildlife affected by contamination in Portland Harbor.

Construction on the project was recently completed, allowing the first of two breaches to connect the project to the Willamette River. The site is already providing habitat for salmon, lamprey, mink, bald eagle, osprey, and other native fish and wildlife.

The powerful photos below depict the significant transformation of the site.
